Softhearted people may give in to emotions easily, but they always strive to find happiness. If you're softhearted, you're incredibly caring and considerate—maybe sometimes even a little too much. It means you have a gentle spirit, have empathy, and are the nurturing type. It is your soft heart that makes you bend and never break. Softhearted people are the ones who feel the pain too much that they tend to succumb to it and take a longer time to heal. So, are you one of them?
Let’s start with a word game. Which word best describes you?
Oh no! Your best friend needs to move and has asked you to help out. What do you do?
I offer to lend my vehicle and ask what time they want me there.
I shrug and say that if I am free I would gladly help.
I roll my eyes but if they ask me again I would probably give in.
I would suggest they hire a good moving company.
If I was free and they offer me dinner I might help for a couple of hours.
A cat, that looks like it has been hungry for awhile, follows you home. What do you do?
Shoo it away and try and get rid of it.
Check my fridge and see if I have something safe to leave outside for it to eat.
Let it inside and check around for any lost animal notices. If no luck, find someone to adopt it.
I can’t leave the poor thing alone. I would keep it!
Ignore it and run home so you don’t have to look at it.
You are at the cashier paying for your groceries and they ask if you would like to make a donation to their charity of the week. What do you say?
Pause for a moment and say to add a dollar to my bill.
Agree and then agree to whatever amount the cashier says.
Smile and jump at donating a reasonable amount.
Quietly say, “Not today thank you”
Simply say, “No” and pay your bill.
You are in a long line of cars waiting to get through an intersection and you notice someone who is trying to pull out of a parking lot. They seem to have been there awhile, what do you do?
Feel bad that they had to wait so long and wave them in front of me.
Hesitate but end up letting them get in front of me.
Slow down a bit to see if they take advantage of the extra space.
Feel bad, but I am in a rush and don’t let them in.
Laugh to yourself that they are waiting and make sure they can’t get in.
Congratulations, you won $10,000. What do you do with it?
I already have a list of things I am going to buy for myself, and a few for my close family members.
Save a bit, but spend a lot on fun.
Reasonably spend a good chunk but use a lot for gifts for friends and family. Maybe a group trip.
Share a percentage with charity, save some, and spend a small amount on gifts for others.
Donate it all, there are others more needy than myself.
You are watching a sad movie, where a young child is falling ill to cancer. What is your reaction?
It is just a movie.
I would choke up a bit and might shed a tear
I would probably hide the tear that comes to my eye
I would openly cry a bit
I would start balling

Send them some cab fare
Check the web for a quick transit connection

Laugh and wish them luck
